Novak is, of course, the 'journalist' who blew Prame's cover.


In 1992, Rove was fired as a consultant for the Bush-Quayle Texas campaign, after officials suspected that he was the source for a column by Novak and Roland Evans that portrayed the Texas presidential operation as in disarray. Rove was accused of making up the story because of a feud with the campaign's chairman, Rob Mosbacher Jr., whom the column reported, erroneously, was to be dumped.

This factoid completely changes the picture, for me anyway. It seems that there *is* somebody in the Bush administration petty enough to act like this for little reason. Obviously, the previous incident is unproven and not on the same level... but still.

Anybody have more information on this? Is this news, or have I just been living in a cave?

Me: "I have a job and five credit cards and am looking into signing a two year lease.  THAT MAKES ME OLD."
Josh: "I don't have a job, I have ONE credit card, I'm stuck in a lease and I'm 28! My mom's basement IS ONE BAD DECISION AWAY!"

Interesting. I haven't seen anything else, though. If it's true, it will be all over the papers by tonight.  ;)
The future is better than the past. Despite the crepehangers, romanticists, and anti-intellectuals, the world steadily grows better because the human mind, applying itself to environment, makes it better. With hands...with tools...with horse sense and science and engineering.
